Custom hose assemblies are an investment of time and money, so you want to ensure they last as long as possible. At HOSER, we want to make sure your custom hose assemblies work well for an extended period of time. Here are a few things that will reduce the lifespan of your custom hose assemblies if you aren’t careful:
- Improper setup—When it comes to custom hose assemblies, proper setup is the best way to enhance their safety, functionality, and lifespan. If your hose assembly is not set up the right way, you will likely spend more time with the machine under repair than in operation.
- Not securing the hose assembly properly—Your hoses should be properly routed and secured before you start using the machine. During planning, make sure there is plenty of room to route your hoses and do not forget to take into account spaces for adapters and connections.
- Failing to use sleeves—If you operate your custom hose assembly in an area where abrasion is possible or unpreventable, make sure you cover your hoses with proper sleeving. This simple action can stop two hoses from rubbing up against each other or your hoses from rubbing against various surfaces and joints.
While we do want to help you make your hoses last, if your custom hose assemblies have started to fail, we are here to help you choose the right hoses for your operation. Contact us today to find out more about the types of hoses we offer!
